5K/7K Engine Selection

Recommended Posts

No good asking me about what bolts up to what just yet.

All I know is that I can bolt a K40 or K50 onto the 7k.

 

And agreed about wikipedia.

Majority of "strange" mods can only be found out by experience.

A lot of the time someone goes "Hmm.. I've got this hanging around - I'll see if it fits!"

 

And yeah, I'll be able to source engines and boxes locally from various wreckers/Toyota reps.

We've got connections ;)

 

Now I've gotta wait until the uni term is over, finish rubbing down this '63 Catalina project for dad and get onto some mechanical goodies!

A lot of the differences will be country-specific. Aussie sells the cheapest crudest shit possible usually, just like NZ used to when they assembled cars. USA gets the biggest capacity motor options of anyone, Asia gets cheap hard-working stuff & Japan gets some lovely sophisticated fast gear. ( that ends up in NZ, Russia & other countries that allow 2nd-hand Jap imports.)

when using the 7k efi to bolt to a 5k. does the 7k-e have a different rocker cover like the 4k-e or could i use the standard 5k rocker cover?

 

also beside needing the obvious of the intake manifold, electronic distributer, ignition coil, oxygen meter, ecu, fuel rail, and a air flow meter, is there anything i will need to do the conversion?

Would you like to start a new topic with this question, it would be easier to find in the future.

Where do you live and what engines are around??  There is the 2L Toyota Y engine (114lb.ft) that would fit, at least is has a square bore and stroke, or the long stroke 7K (103lb.ft) as you said. An oversquare 18R would be another contender, (107lb.ft)  in fact you could fit almost anything with a bit of work.. How big is your budget and how much experience do you have in swapping motors?

Are you sure the 5K is in good condition? Do a compression test and check the points and timing to see how well it is performing. It is definitely a bit small for a commercial vehicle.
